Ehhh. I feel like this would be much better-suited to a tale than an SCP article, especially since the format screw might be passed off as a formatting error rather than intentional. Maybe the "merged" text could be a different color so it's more obvious to the audience that that's what's happening?
I'm also unsure about some of the other narrative bits, like:
As it is programmed to do, the Database would automatically try to compensate by merging these files
Wouldn't attempting to merge all the stuff be way more complicated and potentially-problematic than just creating new (temporary?) files every time new data is presented?
By reading this data, they would discover that despite this objects apparent inactivity, it is unique in the sense that, across the multiverse, only one of it exists.
I don't quite follow this thought pattern. The Foundation reads the data and miraculously comes to the conclusion that only one ever exists in this particular iteration and dimension of the universe?
Also, why a sphere?
Also, in regards to "Look at the date.", I'm guessing it's a reference to SCP-2935? It might be a bit of a reach, since I'm not sure how many people regularly pay a lot of attention to dates in SCP articles, and how much of that overlaps with people who have read 2935 and will remember that date as well.
